Andover, Massachusetts 



Built 1818, Charles Bulfinch, Architect. 
Used for many years as gymnasium. 
Remodeled 1902, for Academy Dining Hall. 

The morning came; I reached the classic hall; 
How all comes back ! the upward slanting floor— 
The masters' thrones that flank the central door— 
The long outstretching alleys that divide 
The rows of desks that stand on either side.

The compilation of this Catalogue was begun in 1878, the year of the 
Centennial Celebration, on the plan of the ordinary college triennial. 
This was afterward modified so as to include biographical data, deemed 
worthy of preservation. The record of students, extended beyond the 
half-century limit to 1830, the date of the organization of the Teachers' 
Seminary (at the wish of Principal Bancroft, who was deeply interested 
in the work), was completed and stereotyped in 1892. Issued now for the 
one hundred and twenty-fifth anniversary of the Academy, sketches of 
all the Trustees, Principals and Assistant Instructors have been added, 
together with a list of the " Divinity Students" in Phillips Academy be- 
fore the founding of the Andover Theological Seminary. 

Grateful acknowledgment is made to librarians, college statisticians, 
public registrars and numerous other correspondents for courteous aid 
rendered during all these years. Those interested in the correct preser- 
vation of such genealogical and historical facts will confer a favor by 
making note of any important errors or omissions.
